Kitchen Makeover

2 hours ago
We moved into a double wide mobile home and I was determined to transform it to give it a farmhouse feel - not an easy task for a mobile home. But it was easy! I used the existing cabinets and painted them out with Behr Creamy in semigloss. The flooring is click and lock from Home Depot.
I love the new look now and I feel I achieved my farmhouse feel. I made the Roman shades myself so I saved a ton of money with that part of the makeover.
Cost: $800 Difficulty: Easy
The 'Before:' bland, unattractive typical 'mobile home' kitchen.
The 'After:' Do you think I gave it a farmhouse feel?
I love how the light streams through the window to light up my new kitchen.
Painting the cabinets white made the stove just blend in. Love it!
The Roman Shades were easy to make but time consuming, I'm very happy with how they turned out.
I opted to add a sink skirt rather than putting the cabinet doors back up. It added a lot to the farmhouse feel.
Here's a list of what I did.
Painted walls and cabinets
Beadboard wallpaper as backsplash painted in semigloss
Removed upper doors on some cabinets
Spray painted the existing knobs
Put down easy click and lock flooring
Easy sew sink skirt
Sewed roman shades
The rest is decor.
Have fun and go for it!

    Thanks for sharing the pictures, you did a wonderful job. I too live in a manufactured house, and the kitchen desperately needs updating. You have actually given me hope that I might be able to do some real changes.

    awesome job! I would suggest putting up a curtain to hide the washer and dryer, similar to the one under the sink to keep with the country charm

    This is too cute! A little money, a big imagination and some serious elbow grease can transform a plain room into to something pretty spectacular.

    Your washer and dryer are gorgeous I wouldn't hide them. You could use bifold doors if you really felt the need but they fit in nicely just like they are.
